"This place in my personal history has tremendous meaning for me. I spent a lot of time there, as my family had property there, with a smoke house. In the fall, late September, early October, I was picked up after school, didn't attend school on Friday, joining my parents, aunts and uncles, at the camp. This is where they caught the chum salmon, smoked, and dried salmon for our winter requirements. The only language spoken was Heiltsuk, which is how I am able to speak & understand Heiltsuk today. This provided me the enrichment of preserving the salmon, more over, the retention of my Heiltsuk heritage, and language."
